A GoFundMe campaign has been launched for techno legend Mike Huckaby.
The fundraiser was created by fellow Detroit DJ and producer Delano Smith after Huckaby had what's been described as a "medical setback".
Smith said, "As artists, we do not have the luxury of job funded health care and sometimes need a bit of help, as costs can be extreme. Especially when the unexpected occurs. So please, give what you can and let’s help our brother in his time of need. And say a prayer for our brother Michael Huckaby."
JASSS has announced a new EP on Whities.
'Whities 027' is the first solo work we've had from the critically acclaimed producer and DJ since her first album, 'Weightless', in 2017. The new material will arrive on 20th March.
Pegged as "an unapologetic ode to rave", the two tracks are inspired by the artist's formative years on the dancefloor as a teenager. Opening number, 'Turbo Olé', sets the bar high via powerhouse breaks and frenzied synth lines — take a listen below.

The release, slated to land on 3rd April, was created by the decade-spanning techno hero after revisiting the label's back catalogue.

Following the album, two 12"s will drop, containing a total of seven exclusive tracks, which will be available to stream and download.
